Getting the word out

Mark Batterson has a great post (and nice invitation image) at 100,000 Invitations.

I like the idea of his church’s “marketing mantra”:

we don’t want anybody in the metro DC area to be able to deny our existence.

I too do a lot of invitation passing out and connect card passing out, especially with our current focus on “Outflow.” You never know when someone’s gonna come to the point of deciding they need to check out a church. I want to be sure the Vineyard Church of Waterville is on their mind when they do!

[Update: I love using overnightprints.com for double sided “connect” cards and incredibly cost effective postcards!]
